I am Janske Kaethoven, a Belgium based photographer.
Thank you so much. I love to wander and take photographs of quiet remote places I've never been. Especially Northern places like Canada, Iceland, Scandinavia and The British Isles. Besides that I try to capture the essence of things I see around me: poetic stills of everyday life.
Yes, shooting "square" does take a different way of looking at photo opportunities. Before Instagram existed I often approached my photos as a series with a specific theme, for instance the “plastic fantastic” series on my website. On Instagram the challenge is to post one photo that tells the whole story.
Instagram is very motivating. It’s a great way to stay in touch with other photographers and to see something new and inspiring every day. The comments on Instagram also help me to get a feeling of what people like in my photos.
